Re: Do you judge a book by its cover??????

Yes i am guilty of judging a book by its cover....i mean its in everyone..if you see specific colors or interesting pictures..you will definetly pick up on an interest and have an urge to go read it...its statistically true...

Absolutley that is the only way I pick books. I think the better the cover the better the book. That's usually how I decide if a movie is worth watching too.

I dn't really think they pick the book for the cover they have into a movie. I think they pick a book for how popular it is and if the reviews are really good. =P

Re: Do you judge a book by its cover??????

I would diffently say that the cover and the title are what get me to even pick up a book. There are a few books that i saw the movie 1st then went and got the book but thats rare for me.

My life would be a mess without my cats and my books.

Re: Do you judge a book by its cover??????

It's not that I judge a book by it's cover. But the cover I also care about haha.

Like for example Sword of Truth series, the covers of the books are almost mismatched as you can see on B&N. But they have the new covers which are all black with an image in the middle and the title and stuff. I prefer those because they match haha.

 

So it's not really about the cover but if I'm able to choose covers I'll go for the best ones. xD

Otherwise I'll read a book even if the cover is carppy xD

Re: Do you judge a book by its cover??????

It's not that I judge a book by it's cover, however, I am much more likely to pick it up if the cover looks intriguing or if the title sounds interesting.

 

Though, if a book has a captivating title and a bad cover, I wont not buy it, I just would wish it had a more attractive cover.

Re: Do you judge a book by its cover??????

sometimes I judge a book by its cover but most of the time I judge it by size I dont like to spend alot on a little book so usually I buy the bigger book
